2001 vintage, consumed with oakbluff. Translucent pink-gold in colour, with spritzy carbonation. Aromas of raspberry, rose, funk, earth, and nettles. Flavors consist of more raspberry, lemon zest, and a bit of lactic funk on the finish. Wickedly acidic! It practically burned going down, but was so refreshing and tasty. Near perfect for someone like me who can't get enough sour/acidic flavors. I'm going to need to track down more of this stuff.

2011 at Moeder Lambic split with a fellow Murican I met.

Clear red and a persistent light pink tinged head.

Big ol' raspberry on the nose. Funky grassy and musty with some citric quality.

Light and tart on the tongue. Big delicious juicy raspberry on the flavor as is to be expected with this series. Musty funk. Finishes dry.

God this was great.

I saved this one to log as my 1,500th review. Big thanks to jcvanderbilt for the trade. Pours a bright juicy reddish pink with nice clarity and minimal head. The nose is unbelievable. Full of jammy raspberries, a hint of earth, layers of signature Cantillon funk, a hint of vinegar and oak, but mainly ripe fresh berries. I could smell this all day! The taste lives up to the delightful smell with fresh juicy berries, waves of tartness which are counterbalanced with sweetness. Each flavor pops as this is the tastiest lambic I have ever had the pleasure of trying. Mouthfeel is light with high carbonation. Overall, this beer is fantastic. Definitely the best of the loons I have tried and one that I will have to seek out again.

2008 bottling

Just ever so slightly disappointing. Not quite the massive fruit bomb of the best year's I've had, nor aged enough to add funky complexity. Still gorgeous, ruby-maroon with fluffy head that lasts. Deep, bold berry notes on the nose and palate, and sharp, lingering, fierce tartness. Clean, overly so in fact. A round, medium body with a crisp finish.

This particular tasting was a fine bottling I'd love to have easy access to, but not something to write home about.
